“We want to be a part of the region’s success story”


Edwards Geldard, one of the East Midlands’ largest commercial law firms, has unveiled plans for a £4m move into new offices in Nottingham. The firm which already has offices in the city alongside bases in Derby and Cardiff, has taken a pre-letting of nearly 23,000 sq ft (2,136 sq m) at Miller Birch’s ng² development at Queen’s Drive.

The firm, which employs about 100 people in Nottingham and has 11 partners following its merger with Eking Manning, said the move will see a further strengthening of its East Midlands legal team.

Miller Birch will complete the four-storey property, of which two floors are available to let, in August 2005.

East Midlands senior partner David Williams said: “This is a major investment which mirrors our ambitious growth plans.

“We’ve outgrown our existing offices on the back of a substantial increase in workload and we feel the new location will help to reflect our reputation and position in the market place.”

Mr Williams added: “We also feel the time is right to make a statement about our confidence in the East Midlands and Nottingham in particular.

“The economy is continuing to expand and we want to be part of the region’s success story.

“It’s a region that is buzzing with innovative, entrepreneurial drive and we are used to dealing with clients who are looking to grow and develop. Only a few years ago, we moved into impressive purpose-built offices in Derby and by the time we open our new Nottingham premises next year, we fully expect to have expanded our staff levels in the region still further.”

Across all three offices, there are 350 people with 48 partners.

Mr Williams said: “This is an extremely exciting time for Edwards Geldard.

“We have seen our client base grow significantly year on year and we are continuing to increase the range of specialist legal services we provide.

“We believe you can only properly serve the region by being an integral part of the business community here. Having a key base in Nottingham is crucially important.”

Miller Birch chairman, Peter Gadsby, said “We are delighted to welcome Edwards Geldard to ng² as we begin development of the second phase of offices following the recent completion of the Experian building.”

Construction work is by Derbyshire based Bowmer & Kirkland.
